Join Girls on the Run for a film about screens ‘n teens

The nonprofit will screen "Screenagers," a documentary that explores the intersection of "probes into the vulnerable corners of family life" when internet addiction is at play.

Teens, right? Be it on the schoolyard or their parents’ landline phones or AOL Instant Messenger or mobile devices, they always seem to be talking to one another.

The ways in which teens communicate and interact with the world at large has increasingly relied less on interpersonal communication and much, much more on the internet. This is not news. The experiences, however, are still relatively new.

And Girls on the Run Philadelphia wants you to know about them.

That’s why the nonprofit has partnered with Leadership Philadelphia’s Connectors and Keepers and the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) for a screening of “Screenagers,” a documentary from director and physician Delaney Ruston that “probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and Internet addiction.”

The screening is on March 23 at CCP. Tickets are $10 a pop, and proceeds will go to scholarships for members of Girls on the Run. Stick around after the show for a panel discussion about teens and the digital world.
